Anatomy of Hands and Feet for Figure Drawing


Start Date





Kennedy 510

End Date


Meeting Day

Saturday and Sunday



This workshop is focused on one of the most difficult and important components of figure drawing to master: the hands and feet. This workshop is designed for any student that wishes to improve their life drawing skills or is interested in honing their proficiency in depicting hands and feet.

Hands and feet tend to be the most challenging and complex aspects of drawing from the human figure. As as a result, they do not often receive enough time or focus in basic and mid-level figure drawing classes. This workshop aims to rectify this common issue by providing an introduction to the skeletal and muscular structures that underlie and inform the surface topography of the outer-most limbs. Through the study and rendering of these underlying structures, students will gain an in-depth understanding of the hands and feet which will result in more anatomically accurate, naturalistic, and expressive drawings of the human figure.
